    I have been working at Four Seasons Health Care full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I would not want to work for any other health care organisation at the moment.

    Cons

    Four Seasons would break a persons heart that cares for Four Seasons and promotes all Their Values , but if Four Seasons does not care for that person, then it's only about business.

    Advice to Management

    Please remember those who genuinely care about caring and who love Four Seasons and head office. Please let those of higher positions treat those lower with respect and dignity, most do but a few don't. Head office management i have met, fantastic.

    I have been working at Four Seasons Health Care full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Having worked here over the past year, I can genuinely say I have loved every minute of it. Everyone, from those who work at our homes to the people at head office all work towards a goal of providing the best experience for our residents, with a feel good attitude all around.

    Positive steps have been taken in terms of the language used across care and exciting new training opportunities have been made available to all. There is also great opportunities for career progression.

    With the forward thinking approach of our CEO, Tim Hammond, I am really looking forward to what the next 12 months bring!

    Cons

    In the past, projects have took time to get going, but this has improved.

    Advice to Management

    Make all staff more aware of the training opportunities available.

    Pros

    Been through some tough times but new manager has brought the home up from the bottom and now staff can see a light at the end of the tunnel. Most staff happy now but need a little appreciation in the wage packet!

    Cons

    Weekends, nights and bank holiday Monday working not appreciated in salary as in other companies.

    Advice to Management

    The mass exit of staff needs attention. Something needs to be done to keep good existing staff.

    Pros

    Well established company

    Cons

    Pay dates seems not to be the same forever changing and not sure what they are the cut off dates.

    Advice to Management

    Induction process is not properly planned and as a new starter I wasted time just following other nurses.My personal documentation take a long while to put through and this leave with a backlog of E-learning which I need to do on my own time and having young kids it's not helpful at all.

Forced to do overtime ..rota changed everyday with out notice .. Residents are left to fend for themselves as staff are being cut ..left soaking wet for hours because manager is more worried bout paperwork and how the home looks to new residents .... DO NOT WORK FOR FOURSEASONS HEALTHCARE AT ALL ..

    Advice to Management
